XML Prague Night
The organizers believe that the social dimension of the conference is a natural extension of its scholary program. As every year, the XML Prague Saturday evening (this year its March 13th) is the time of the Social Dinner and Sponsors Events.
This year, The Strahov Monastic Brevery has been selected to host the Social Dinner and a couple of Sponsors Events.
Founded A.D. 1140 by Duke Vladislav II. of Bohemia, the Strahov Monastry became a traditional centre of knowledge with its priceless library, today of 200 thousand books, including about three thousand manuscripts.
The organizers hope that XML Prague participants will feel comfortably in the intimate vicinity of such a huge amount of, sometimes rather vaguely structured, data.
The Monastry also serves as The Museum of Czech Literature today.
And as elsewhere in Europe, monks are renown for mastering the beer brewing....
XML Prague Night starts with the social dinner, that is open to XML Prague participants with the full-pass option, and for their accompanying persons with the supplementary social dinner pass.
Sponsors Events - open for every participant
All XML Prague participants are welcome to join the crowd for the Sponsors Events later evening.
